Gucci Under Fire For “Stealing” Idea From Black Designer?

Published: Wednesday 31st May 2017 by David

For many in the Hip-Hop community, the creative life force that is Dapper Dan stands as the heart of its relationship with fashion.

Responsible for the looks and styles sported by many a fashion-forward musician in the 80s and 90s, the visionary saw his art receive a fresh dose of his life when one of his creations became a meme on social media.

Little did he know that the boys and girls of Instagram weren’t the only ones “liking” his work.

For, much to the horror of his supporters, the fashion house Gucci seems to have “borrowed” his idea to support their ‘Gucci Cruise’ collection.

Confused, some took to social media to criticise the company.

Your thoughts?

    Dirty thieves. That being said, Beyonce has stolen from more black writers and creative people so Gucci shouldn’t be singled out.

    This is the problem, because when we voice our parasitic relationship with white people be it foreign or domestic people always make it seem like were trippin. But they are always stealing our style and creations and telling us to pick ourselves up by the bootstraps but how can we when they keep stealing our boots. That’s why we have to stop supporting theses lame companies our money is important because people are ignorant and Gucci banked on people being that, because this isn’t the first time white owned fashion houses have done this. Not only that white’s will go out their way to destroy you but cant do the same with creativity. So in short we have to stop supporting our own disenfranchisement by letting them get away with this madness and hypocrisy.
